Curriculum Overview

Our Commitment

At the Braybrook Centre we provide an outstanding and diverse curriculum which aspires to respond to the local and national agenda in order to ensure all our students receive a high quality learning experience.lightbulb

Our curriculum is the vehicle to allow our students to become:

  • Confident and successful individuals who enjoy learning, make ambitious progress and achieve high quality and meaningful qualifications
  • Responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society including their local community and the wider international world in which they exist.

Whilst confirming our commitment to the broad and balanced principles of the national curriculum, we also celebrate and use our specialisms to drive excellence and innovation. We believe that in order to access a broad and balanced curriculum, all students need to be confident and proficient in the basic skills of Reading, Writing, Communication and Mathematics and these are given the highest priority at all times.

We believe that a student’s progress is what ultimately leads to their achievement and that an enabling curriculum model is one which offers a ‘stage, not age’ approach.  At Lawnswood we replicate a mainstream curriculum with additional intervention strategies to meet the individual needs of our students.  We consider it critical that equal opportunities are promoted and realised at all levels of curriculum provision and that this is integral to outstanding practice.

Curriculum Model


Whilst we provide extensive individual and small group withdrawal support our curriculum is one which celebrates inclusion at all times and we firmly believe that our diversity as a Pupil Referral Unit ultimately enriches and enhances our curriculum for the benefit of all.
